Health Improvement Priorities

HWPP provides funding for health improvement through three interrelated health improvement priorities. By focusing on these, projects will build capacity that will endure well beyond HWPP funding. The priority areas identified by HWPP are intentionally broad and rely on the creativity of partners to propose innovative programs to improve the health of the public.

HWPP projects must address health improvement by first selecting one primary priority area from each of the three sections below on which to focus. Projects may further refine that focus by identifying one or more additional categories from each area that may also be affected by the project activities.

Projects should address one or more of the the Infrastructure Focus Areas to lead to transformative health improvement:

  • access to high-quality health services
  • collaborative partnerships for community health improvement
  • diverse, sufficient and competent workforce that promotes and protects health
  • emergency preparedness, response and recovery
  • health literacy
  • public health capacity and quality
  • public health leadership and policy
  • systems to manage and share health information and knowledge

Projects should address one or more of the following specific populations:

  • children and adolescents
  • disabled
  • men
  • racial and ethnic populations
  • rural
  • seniors
  • uninsured
  • urban
  • women

Projects should address one or more of the following:

  • adequate, appropriate and safe food and nutrition
